Through trial and error and some good advice doing small letters has become quite a bit easier. Using a 2/0 blade and a slower speed the work looks much better. Thanks to all of you for some insight. I'd also like to thank Charley L. for the blade quick release for this PS scrollmate. It really makes it easier to do fretwork. Charley has a lot of experience in woodworking and is a generous, decent person. Thanks again, Charley! I'd also like to again thank Steve Good for his website. He is an inspiration to novice scrollers like me. He provides free patterns and will accept donations in order to keep his site going. Hope everyone is doing well and staying busy in the shop.
